5 Benefits of Coconut Water

Not so guilty pleasure

It’s been a while since I wrote a ‘Guilty Pleasure’ post, never mind a ‘Not So Guilty Pleasure’ so I decided that it was time for me to get around to paying a bit more attention to the nutritional side of things (especially after my new found love  for coconut water)

If you follow my posts on Facebook or Twitter you would know that I am now addicted to coconut water (there’s worse things out there….)

After the Dublin Fashion Festival, where I met the beautiful Darren Kennedy pictured somewhere on the right, I was just hooked on Vita Coco coconut water and then of course I was introduced to KOH Coconut water which is even tastier that Vita Coco‘s (not to mention the difference in price)

The point is, enhancewhatsyours.com loves coconut water and here are 5 benefits of coconut water that we put together to help you Enhance Whats Yours:

1. Anti-aging: The antioxidants in coconut water slow down the aging process because it helps fight free radicals (can’t go wrong!)

2. Weight- loss: Coconut water is low in fat, calories and sugars and rich in vitamins and nutrients so it can help you feel full pretty quickly. This will help suppress the feeling of hunger

Note:don’t use it as a replacement for food, it’s just something to keep you going until you have a real meal

3. Glowing Skin: Coconut water is considered to be one of the purest ones (after water that is) – it’s great for hydrating the skin and making your skin look more youthful and supple. Some say that coconut water has positive effects when dabbed on the skin but I’d feel pretty guilty for doing that so I guess that’s something I’ll never know……

4. Vitamins and Nutrients: Coconut water is a natural source of nutrients as it  contains  calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium (”more potassium than a banana”), zinc, Vitamin C and Vitamins of B so if you aren’t feeling the best, drink some coconut water and you’ll surly be energized!

5. Flushes toxins out: Coconut water is very beneficial for your digestive system, it helps remove toxins from your body and also provides hydration which will relieve you from any tiredness or fatigue (again a great energy boost!)

Honestly I just like the taste of coconut water, the fact that it has all these benefits (as well as beauty benefits) is just a bonus for me….
